A letter from someone helped on how my giving changed
his or her life is by far the strongest motivator for
me. Sure, a tax break is wonderful, but knowing that
someone’s life has improved and that they are grateful
is the best appreciation.
I believe it’s my moral responsibility to give in
proportion to my wealth, even if it is uncomfortable or
There isn’t room in my world for negative causes. The
more uneasy I feel, the more I work for change.
I don’t give for the tax break. I don’t give because I
get lots of emails asking me to. I give because I’m
passionate about the causes I’m helping. That’s it.
Plain and simple.
